Access from EThOS:
In recent years, offshore reservoirs have been developed in deeper and deeper water environments. Steel catenary risers (SCRs) are being considered used In conjunction with a semi-submersible in deepwater and harsh environments such as Northern North Sea, which presents significant design challenges. To increase the understanding of SCR behaviour and Improve the design of such systems in deepwater harsh environments, the design modelling framework of deepwater SCR with weight-optimised coating was developed and investigated.
